Made for a great side dish for dinner tonight. Made this with the following options.. used beef broth, that's what I had on hand, left out the onion powder, and left out the salt. Well seasoned as for the 4 of us, it was just enough. A great go to weeknight dinner Made for 1-2-3 hits.

Yummy! I used chicken broth and added garlic. Garlic is a must in our house. I have not yet mastered the creaminess of risotto yet but will get there. I love this b/c all of the ingredients are a staple in my house.

Very flavorful risotto!!! I made 1/2 of the recipe and followed as written. I think adding the wine really made a difference with the flavor and think that lemon juice, as the other reviewer suggested, would also be good with or without the wine. I served this with a grilled chicken breast. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for Photo Tag Game.

This is a very easy risotto recipe. I used all homemade vegetable stock and skipped the wine since I wasn't going to open a bottle for 1/2 cup and I used an onion/pepper instead of onion powder. I actually forgot to add the Parmesan and salt & pepper at the end, and still found it tasty. Next time I would probably add a little lemon and butter at the end just to make it a little richer. I like that this recipe is a good basic palate for adding lots of flavors at the end. I do think the number of servings is off. No way can I cup of rice make a meal for 5 people. I'd say it is more like 2 servings if used as a base for a main dish. Served with Crawfish Balls recipe that I'm going to post shortly.
